HyFive opens its first London hydrogen refuelling station

ITM Power, an energy storage and clean fuel company, has launched its first public access hydrogen refuelling station in London in the UK, at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington.

The station was opened to the public by Andrew Jones MP, Transport Minister at Department for Transport, and was supported by Toyota and fellow automotive manufacturer members of the European HyFive consortium, Hyundai, Honda and Renault’s technology partner Symbio FCell.

The station is the first of three to be opened in the UK as part of the pan-European HyFive project, funded by the European Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU) and the UK government Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).

Transport Minister Andrew Jones MP, who today (May 13) announced a £2m (US$2.8m) government fund to support the roll-out of hydrogen vehicles in public and private sector fleets, said, “We are committed to making all cars and vans zero-emission by 2050, and hydrogen vehicles have a huge role to play in delivering cleaner, greener journeys.

“The new refuelling station at Teddington is just one of 12 stations opening this year, backed by £5m (US$7.1m) of government funding, that will make it easier for more people to switch to this exciting new technology.”

Located at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, the hydrogen refuelling station is close to the A316 and A308 trunk roads, and is available for commercial and private fleets operating fuel cell electric vehicles.

“The opening of ITM Power’s new filling station is an excellent example of how a coordinated hydrogen fuel infrastructure is successfully being developed in the UK with backing from the HyFive consortium," explained Paul Van der Burgh, Toyota (GB) PLC president and managing director. "We are pleased to continue our support for the wider provision of hydrogen fuel outlets, which will encourage increased customer uptake of zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cell vehicles such as the Toyota Mirai saloon.”

Teams from ITM Power and BOC Linde are to commission and open a further four electrolyser-based refuelling stations in and around London before the end of 2016.
